29 November 2023 2 min. read

Kroll, a global risk and financial advisory firm, has launched its Alternatives Risk Assessment Platform – a comprehensive portfolio monitoring and diligence solution for asset allocators and managers.

The new platform helps asset allocators and managers make more informed investment decisions and manage portfolio risk. The Alternatives Risk Assessment Platform streamlines collection, analysis, and exchange of risk information such as financial, operational, environmental, social and reputational data. It also offers a suite of benchmarks to help quickly identify areas of concern.

“Kroll’s Alternatives Risk Assessment Platform is a unique offering that gathers meaningful information in one central location, creating both an efficient due diligence process and a streamlined approach for ongoing monitoring of portfolio risks,” said John Ward and Julianne Recine, managing directors, alternative asset advisory. “The Platform further provides peer comparisons and additive services such as background searches, news feeds, financial statement reviews and regulatory filings.”

The platform is backed by Kroll’s expertise, which spans a nearly 100-year history of advising on risk, governance, transactions, and valuation.

 “Our Alternative Risk Assessment Platform excels in optimizing the entire data lifecycle—collection, analysis and sharing—empowering asset managers to proactively mitigate risks and attract investment and allowing allocators to efficiently monitor their investments, while simultaneously dramatically reducing the friction for asset managers that are increasingly in need of a cohesive solution to distribute content securely and efficiently to investors," said Janos Renz Hotz, managing director, digital solutions.

Kroll is headquartered in New York and has more than 6,500 professionals globally providing services in valuation, expert services, investigations, cyber security, corporate finance, restructuring, legal and business solutions, data analytics, and regulatory compliance.

The consultancy earlier this year appointed Craig Wymant as chief people officer and David Dunn as chief information security officer.
